a couple of times. now what happened in benghazi, afterwards, we have lost four of our diplomats, our ambassador was killed. this is a straj trag -- this is a tragedy. this is outrageous. going forward, we need peace through strength. our adversaries who are tempted to test us need to than america is strong millitarily, that we won't have the devastating defense cuts that questions the resolve and the strength of our military. our president needs to speak with force and clarity for our principles. >> greta: that mixes several issues ever achieving peace through strength. we have the issue of sequestration and afghanistan and what will we do with afghanistan? >> peace through strength. don't gut the military. the president -- don't forget -- give us a big cut to the military, $478 billion, which we think goes past the bone, compromises readiness or strength. we need to give our soldier, sail oairmen and marines, the equipment to do their job as efficiently as possible. sequestration -- we passed the legislation in the house, i auhorr thorred it -- i authored it to go after the waste. t

at the consulate in benghazi. secretary of state hillary clinton was scheduled to testify to congress in a closed intelligence briefing today. it's been suggested the u.s. was warned about that attack in libya three days before it happened. the administration insists they haven't seen intelligence about "significant advanced planning" for that attack. but interestingly the white house is now calling the deadly assault on the u.s. consulate in benghazi a terrorist attack for the first time. and it happened on the anniversary of 9/11. fancy that. u.s. relations with israel at least on the surface appear to be getting much worse as president obama continues to say he doesn't have time to meet with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu. iran continues to march toward nuclear weapons. syria continues to murder its own people. it all suddenly feels much worse than it has for some time. here's the question, how satisfied are you with u.s. policy in the middle east? go to cnn.com/caffertyfile. post a comment. or go to our post on "the situation room" facebook page. wolf. >> jack, thank you. >>> meanw
to deal with the situation and the killings that happened in benghazi, 24 hours ago now. >> we appreciate you being with us. thank you. the historical context of the national tragedy cannot be understated, the last time a diplomat of this stature was assassinated was 1979, when the u.s. ambassador to afghanistan was killed in a gun battle. the events of yesterday felt similar to the era of weakness that president jimmy carter presided over. on a day when americans hoped to pause in remembrance of the victims of the 9/11 terror attacks, they were instead greeted with the face of a new age of terrorists, even worse, greeted with a president unwilling or unable to confront them. but the violence on september 11, 2012, didn't start libya. it began when radical islamists in egypt who, were outrained over a u.s.-made film that insults muhammad, and burned the american flag and replaced it with one similar to that of al qaeda. the white house issue aid staimentd apologizing to the radicals, saying, quote, the embassy condemns misguided efforts to hurt the religious feelings of muslims. the presi
gadhafi and killed in a city, benghazi, that he helped to save. i understand that there are 200 marines being sent to libya. what do we know about the tk orders? >> 200 marines who are already in the region, they are aboard one of those flat-top helicopter carriers in the iranian sea. they are called amphibious ready groups, and they are called f.a.s.t. teams prepositioned in all parts of the world, but particularly the hot middle east region as we see here. it should not take long to get those 200 marines who will be particularly equipped for the mission there in tripoli. this is not some kind of military operation or a strike of any kind. they will be armed with small arms and anti-riot gear and the like as opposed to going in for a military strike or operation. now in addition to that preparations are under way, too, to send additional f.a.s.t. teams, maybe not in the same numbers, but one to cairo and one to kabul. we know from past experience there has been violent and deadly sectarian flare ups against americans in kabul over some of the actions of american troops there that were

. the powder keg is still conserving its powder, it seems. ironical ironically, benghazi remained pretty calm, perhaps the libyan government's quick crack down on perpetrators, a number have been arrested already. there's a man hunt going on if you believe what you hear from the libyan government. that's perhaps had an affect on tamping down the tension in benghazi. but the u.s. government's taking no chances. all u.s. diplomatic personnel evacuated to tripoli and only emergency staff being kept on at the embassy in the capital. as you mentioned in cairo, it's been another -- on the third day of protests -- another active day but not a lot of death -- no deaths spo-to-speak of. not too many people have been injured. so perhaps a second degree level of violence. overnight dramatic scenes near the u.s. embassy, which is about 500 yards behind me down the road next to the mosque, riot police charging forward, firing tear gas, trying in vain to disperse a crowd. this cat and mouse stand-off went on all day today. expecting to see it again later on. now the biggest concern, as you alluded to, is t
americans killed in benghazi this week will return. the internet brings the world together also gives anyone with a computer the ability to light a fuse and ignite a tragic chain of events. joining us from washington, david wood, senior military correspondent with "the huffington post." always great to see you. >> hi, alex. >> these are certainly changing and tragic times. that news that the president and the secretary of state will be greeting the remains of chris stevens, the ambassador to libya, i think it is with heavy hearts the nation welcomes back his body under tragic circumstances. want to talk about sort of the larger picture here which is just how this thing started sort of, you know, in one corner of the world and has spread rapidly throughout the muslim world from africa to southeast asia. you are a military and defense expert. what do you make of the situation in terms of how we protect american interests overseas at the same time accounting for the fact that we are a country with free speech and civil liberties are a big part of what makes america. >> you know what word i've b
on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya, that left the u.s. ambassador and three other americans dead. first ambassador murdered on the job in a generation. some of this is coming from an anti-islamic film made here in the u.s. and it appears there is violence aimed across the country in a big region. we begin tonight with our chief foreign correspondent, richard engel, who is back, where by the way they're reporting 200 injuries today. richard, good evening. >> reporter: good evening, brian, clashes are still continuing here, even at this late hour near the u.s. embassy, and they were not the only ones in this region. this mess in the middle east is not over yet. the protesters in yemen set out to destroy the american embassy, to punish onto insult against islam. protesters climbed the perimeter fence, undeterred by the yemen security forces who tried to keep them back, wi water tanks. the crowds pushed forward, and managed to get inside the embassy parking lot. smashing windows, torching vehicles, using a forklift to do even more damage. this time, the u.s. embassy was prepared, sta
-american protests tomorrow. and in benghazi and libya, reports that libyan authorities have arrested four men suspected of taking part in tuesday's attack on the u.s. consulate, resulting in the murder of our ambassador, christopher stephens and three other americans. as you can see, unrest and demonstrations in the middle east are spreading. in what appears to be an organized series of protests and demonstrations, protesters have showed up at our embassies in tunisia, morocco, sudan, bangladesh, and yemen as well. the american embassy stormed by a group of protesters and turned back. an unusual alliance has taken hold in iraq. shia muslims have been working together with sunnis and their protest against the united states. they have joined forces as they chant death to america in the streets of baghdad. as those protests progressed over the last few days, president obama and his administration struggling to even define our relationship with some of those countries, including egypt. president obama, who refused to take questions from the white house press corps did sit down with telemundo and

, libyans rose up and got rid of the militants who were in the benghazi area, the ones responsible for killing our ambassador -- >> it took a while. >> it took a couple days. they denounced the attack on the ambassador, and many wrote condolences letters, and i think it could be a tipping point in the right direction. it's not overnight. i am being honest, if you go to twitter and facebook, you see the comments i am getting, never seen muslims from other countries, indonesia and pakistan and the middle east denouncing this. to me we are at a point where perhaps we are about to take a big step. that's what i am hopeful about. >> thanks, i appreciate having the conversation, too. our conversation about this topic struck a cord on social media last nig. some of you called me bias, and others said the same for dean. i can't speak for dean, but dean and i are glad we can speak honestly and openly on any other subject. as for me, am i biassed? maybe i am. i think more of us should, at the very least, admit that we might have a bias or prejudice because if you don't allow the possibility
is stand back. for example, after the attack on the benghazi consulate that the right thing to do is you say nothing because when an american ambassador is killed, that probably indicates that some serious mistake happened. that's a good moment to say nothing and to wait for facts to emerge. this president has a record that is difficult to defend in a lot of respects. job creation, bad, economic growth, too slow. and his foreign policy initiative looks like it is going up in flames. that's the place where mitt romney should go. and of course president obama and his team wake up every morning and say how can we make today be about anything other than that? unfortunately so far they're doing pretty well. >> you know, i think this president has a tremendous record to go out there and tell the american people. stabilizing the economy, 30 months of consecutive job growth, bin laden dead, gadhafi gone, al qaeda weakened. look, we shouldn't run this election on the republican terms. nor should president obama have to respond every time mitt romney makes a mistake and try to prop him up. mitt ro
